Study: Football Helmets Not Much Protection Against Hits to Side of Head
HealthyDay News
Football helmets do little to protect against hits to the side of the head that can cause brain injury and concussion, a new study finds. Researchers placed sensors in a crash test dummy and conducted 330 tests to determine how well 10 leading football helmets protected against brain injury during 12 mile-per-hour impacts. On average, the helmets reduced the risk of brain injury from a hit to the side of the head by only 20 percent compared to not wearing a helmet.
